12 oz. bottle to dimpled mug. Pours golden with small white head, but lots of bubbles throughout the drink. Bready malt and grains, maybe some toffee. Nicely balanced sweet with a bit of a bite in the finish. Lite mouthfeel but not watery. Good Heller Bock.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark golden color with a diminished white head. Sweet aromas with pale malt and grapes. Smells a bit like a malt liquor. Light pale malt flavors with hints of floral hops. A touch of caramel. Some alcohol in the finish and linger. A better than average malt liquor and not quite clean bock. 1/11

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Lightly browned orange with a large, light tan head. Big, straightforward caramel malt aroma. Sweet flavor, light brown sugar and toasty grains. Finish is a bit chalky. Rather high carbonation, a bit too much for my taste. Not much to this - itís not bad, but not overly flavorful and very one dimensional.

Pleasant well rounded bock, albeit somewhat low on flavors. Slightly watery on the ending. All in all quite pleasant.

Tap at New Bohemia. Smallish pint glass. Light golden color...leaning towards orange. Aroma doesnít really impress...skewing more malty sweetness. Taste is a little more average. Some malt. Maybe mild hops. Not much alcohol presence. Iím on board with the option but I want something more unique. Taste finishes mostly sweet and malt/cereal. Very drinkable. Aftertaste is slightly unpleasant....maybe flat. Much like the book Iíd rather drink with Huck Finn than Boss Tom Sawyer. More like middle manager Tom.

Tap at new bohemia. Gold with small head. Subtle aroma. Easy to drink and smooth. But not a ton of flavor. Above average, but not amazing.

Dark clear gold pour. Think head. Aroma of perfume barley, honey cookies. Big malt syrup flavor, almost belgian candi stuff going on here. Tastes a bit like wet leaves. Finishes dry-ish.
